Now that I have a bit more free time on my hands I’ve reinvigorated my interest in reading novels, and I came across a great series by accident. I wandered into a cute independent book store near my office, Magic City Books. Since I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, I just picked up random […]Read More Enter Sandman
Friends, I’ve been reading. Before, this blog would have been filled with reviews of novels, but quite frankly, I don’t have time for that. It took me a month to read The Shining, and that can only partly be blamed on needing to read during the daylight hours. I get caught up in books so much […]Read More Ah, Sweet Geekery
About a year ago, I wrote a post about my Comic Book Confusion. Since I was at a loss about which comic books to read and where to start, I decide to ask an expert. I got my opportunity at Wizard World’s Comic Con in Tulsa last month. With so many artists and writers in […]Read More I Asked the Experts
“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral […]Read More I read a list of banned books today and thought of this.
Have you ever been innocently wandering down the aisle at a bookstore and have a cover reach out and smack you? I mean figuratively not literally. (Although if this has happened to you literally, I think that’s a story I need to know!) It happened to me. Big, bold, neon orange and yellow with a […]Read More I Should Have Known A “Bad Monkey” Would Be Funny
As school starts up again, I started thinking about books (What? I can’t help it. I love books) and what students are going to be assigned to read this year. Some of them can be a struggle to finish (believe me, I remember) but not all of them are dry dusty old tomes that you’ll […]Read More What Did Harper Lee Do After Mockingbird?
The Fault in Our Stars may have been the first book I’ve read by the insanely popular young adult author, John Green, but it was so good, it ensured it wouldn’t be the last. Looking for Alaska made the journey to Boston with me, and I, for some reason, didn’t think that reading it on […]Read More Looking for Alaska
Recently, I read another J.D. Robb novel, Concealed in Death, and unlike the last one, this one rejuvenated my enthusiasm for the series until I really started thinking about it. Yes, I had no idea who’d “done” it. My suspicions were confirmed, but I didn’t know how they’d pulled the whole thing off until it was […]Read More Concealed in Death
I’m dipping my foot into the world of comic books, slowly but surely. Apparently, I started off at what people who know comic books tell me is the top, Sandman. I’ve been warned that I may be let down by others, but after finishing Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed Sandman several people recommended Saga. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to […]Read More Comic Book Confusion
I know. I’m a bad blogger. Lately I’ve kind of become a bit of a hermit, but all that’s changing. I’ve missed you guys! My hermit status has been good for quite a bit of reading, so this will be the first of several new book reviews. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom […]Read More Miss Peregrin’s Home for Peculiar Children
